Ok so I know it is always widely known who the best are, but who are some you feel don't get enough credit for their amazing talent. Can be classic band or more recent. One of my picks is Michael Shrieve, former drummer for Santana. What a drum solo!
Most of the drummers I really like aren't underrated by the people who listen to the band. Mike Portnoy (of Dream Theater fame) Chris Adler (Lamb of God) The Rev (Avenged Sevenfold... R. I. P.) Brand Dailor (Mastodon)
I pick Lars Ulrich from Metallica. Not just based on drumming skill, but also on his song writing skills. Many bands don't even write hardly any of their songs, but he has wrote many of Metallica's songs.
